I think this school is awful. My son transferred from a school district in another state and was in the talented and gifted program there. i have been stalking the school about getting him entered in beeber's program after giving the them required information and they still have not gotten back to me. the principal never follows up and the staff barely cares.

I think Beeber is a great school. They have good programs for the children to college. My son was very quiet and to his self. He is in programs which is talent search and project mars. The programes helps him how to work togather as a team also plan for college. It let the children know that they can be what ever they wish to be...(I ask my son what do he like about program inside and out? Answer: It is cool becaue they talk about helping the homeless, owning your own business, teach you to stay away from drugs, and work together.

I'm not aparent I'm a eigth grader and i just graduated from this school. It is a good school you dont have to worry about being bullied and stuff. I felt safe in school. The teachers are like friends they really care about there students. Its lots of activites you can join up in its something for everyone. It was so good I'm sad to leave it. All the eighth graders were crying to go because you grow so many friends along the way.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
